Sugar Shack!

usc_usc22_tbuThis week’s Unity challenge came from Carole, and it was hard for me! She challenged us to use a non-Valentine’s stamp in a Valentine way – plus add a button and some ribbon! Aaaaackkk! I thought and I pondered and I picked through my stamps and came up with a million plans and chucked them out the window. And then I thought of this – I love this little house from Love, Etc. –  the January Kit of the Month. And I hadn’t even inked it up! The horror! So, I went in search of the perfect dp and found this piece, sent to me by Lindsey over at Jacksonbelle Embellishments. It is non-Valentine-ish, so I figured it went with my theme. Plus. I *love* it, so I knew I was headed in the right direction.

usc_usc22close_tbuI colored my image with Copics and smothered it with Shimmerz and Shimmerz Blingz. You can never have too much shimmer, right? RIGHT???? I added photo corners on the right side of the card, accented with White Opal Liquid Pearls, and used that again above and under my sentiment. My little button is a Doodlebug holdover that has been in my stash forever – he is so thrilled to have gotten a new twist with some liquid pearls! I used my cropadile to put a jumbo eyelet on, threaded some ribbon through it, and walked away. I figured if I came back and looked at it and hated it, I’d start over again. But I actually like it. Different for me, but different is good!
